Our Services

Metrofile’s services include:

  • Records Storage and Management

    All corporations and large enterprises have significant volumes of records and information that require specialised management.

  • Image Processing

    Many corporations and large enterprises need to convert paper-based documents, drawings or records on paper or film to digital or electronic data.

  • Backup Storage and Management

    Up to 95% of businesses that experience significant data loss will fail, nearly half of them within six months of the event.

  • Records Management Software

    What would happen if key personnel tasked with record management were suddenly not available? Would other members of staff be able to access and find critical business information?

  • Records Management Consultancy

    Reliable and effective records management begins with the development of a formal records management policy.

In addition to its South African operations, the company has facilities in Mozambique and Nigeria, and through its partnership with CSX Customer Services, it services contracts in a number of other African countries. Read More
